Bill Joy’s Fortune Interview

Bill joy had this interview with Fortune recently and spoke at length about a couple of things.
I completely flipped my lid about his world views was when I read an April 2000 essay
published in Wired magazine on Why the future doesn’t need us. It spoke of how our most powerful 21st-century technologies – robotics, genetic engineering, and nanotech – are threatening to make humans an endangered species

This article evoked a lot of discussion in a humanities course at college. The course was titled ‘Vedanta’. I also remember working on some assignment related to this.
